How to Care for Your BRELLI
When you open your BRELLI for the first time...
Be sure to separate the spokes by hand. The bio film can stick together, and it is best to open your BRELLI gently for the first time.
After the Rain
Let your BRELLI dry in the open position if possible. If not, simply put it into the carrying case, which is breathable and your BRELLI will dry on its own.
Keep your BRELLI in its carrying case when not in use.
Wipe the canopy with a soft damp cloth if needed. Please be careful with some chemicals, no ammonia products can be used on your BRELLI, as they will cause a slight haze to appear on the BRELLIXⓇ Film. Plain water will clean off most stains and keep your BRELLI beautiful.
To remove stains from the bamboo, use a 1:1 mixture of white vinegar and water. You can spray this solution on with a spray bottle or use a soft cloth.
If you need to wash the carrying case, use cold water without bleach, and lay flat to dry. Turn inside out to iron the carrying case.
It is best to keep your BRELLI between 45 and 150 degrees Fahrenheit (7-65 degrees Celsius). The BRELLIXⓇ plastic has been tested to have a melting point up to 250 degrees Farenheit. It should be safe to keep your BRELLI in your car, even in the summer time. However, the plastic may slightly stick together with extreme heat, therefore care should be taken when opening it. In extreme cold temperatures, the BRELLI can lose some elasticity, becoming brittle. In this case, it should be allowed to warm to room temperature before opening it again... this will ensure no damage is done to the canopy's plastic.
The UV sun protection is integrated in the canopy's plastic. it is not a coating that can wear off with time and usage. which makes it the perfect UV umbrella. There are no special care instructions to ensure BRELLI's sun protection. You are protected from 99% of UVA/UVB rays while under the shadow of the BRELLI's canopy.
